 Latest Eagles Player Notes
Nov 20 2017 - Zach Ertz
  TE Zach Ertz, who missed the previous game with a hamstring injury, had his least productive game of the season. Ertz, who leads the team in receptions, had just two catches for 8 yards.


Nov 20 2017 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount played 30 snaps and had a team-high 13 carries against the Cowboys. Eight of his 13 carries were on first down.


Nov 20 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby played for the first time Sunday since dislocating his ankle in Week 1. He had an interception and knocked away a pass in the end zone intended for Dez Bryant. He also had a team-high eight tackles. Darby said the ankle still isn't completely healed, but is close.


Nov 20 2017 - Caleb Sturgis
  K Caleb Sturgis, who was the Eagles' kicker until he suffered a hip injury in Week 1, is on injured reserve and could be activated if Elliott can't go. He is healthy and has been kicking on his own. .


Nov 20 2017 - Jake Elliott
  K Jake Elliott suffered a concussion on the opening kickoff Sunday when he tried to tackle Cowboys return man Ryan Switzer at the end of his game-opening 61-yard kickoff return. They will monitor him this week. It's too early to tell whether he'll be able to play Sunday against Chicago.


Nov 20 2017 - Jake Elliott
  PK Jake Elliott suffered a head injury making a tackle on the opening kickoff as Cowboys returner Ryan Switzer brought the game-opening kick back to the Eagles' 37-yard line. Elliott remained in the game to kick an extra point, but missed a 34-yard field goal later in the first quarter and was evaluated after that for a head injury. Philadelphia head coach Doug Pederson refused to pinpoint the exact moment of Elliott's injury, but the tackle on Switzer was the kicker's only obvious contact play. "I've got to watch a little bit of the film and see, but until I know more, I'm not going to speculate on the head injury at this time," Pederson said. When Elliott couldn't return to the game, Philadelphia was forced to improvise on special teams. Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill took over kicking off and the Eagles went for two-point conversions after all four of their second-half touchdowns, successfully converting three.


Nov 20 2017 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi broke loose for a 71-yard run to the Dallas 15. He finished with 91 rushing yards on seven carries, leading the way as the Eagles ran for 215 yards and 6.5 per carry.


Nov 20 2017 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz threw a pair of touchdown passes as Philadelphia scored on its first three possessions of the second half and surged to a 37-9 victory on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium. With their kicking game limited due to an injury to Jake Elliott, the Eagles went for two after each of their second-half touchdowns. Wentz made good on two of them with passes to Alshon Jeffery and tight end Trey Burton, and running back Corey Clement ran for another one. "When I found out that Jake was being evaluated, at that point I went into go-for-it (mode) on fourth down in the field-goal-range situations," Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said. "The scoring drives were just sort of a no-brainer to go for it on two-point conversions." It worked. Wentz converted a fourth-and-5 from the Dallas 17 when he connected with Jeffery for a touchdown that put Philadelphia ahead 29-9 with 12:10 left in the fourth quarter. Wentz's stellar second half helped him finish with 168 passing yards on 14-of-27 passing.


Nov 15 2017 - Halapoulivaati Vaitai
  T Halapoulivaati Vaitai will make his third straight start at left tackle. He replaced Jason Peters, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 7.


Nov 15 2017 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi, who played 17 snaps and had eight carries in his first game with the Eagles in Week 9, will have a much larger role Sunday against Dallas.


Nov 15 2017 - Jaylen Watkins
  CB Jaylen Watkins was listed on the injury report with a hamstring injury, but was a full practice participant.


Nov 15 2017 - Zach Ertz
  TE Zach Ertz, who missed the Eagles' Week 9 game against Denver with a tight hamstring, practiced Wednesday. Chances are good he will play Sunday against the Cowboys.


Nov 15 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby was a full practice participant Wednesday and is expected to return to the lineup Sunday against Dallas. He's been out since Week 1 when he dislocated his ankle.


Nov 15 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby, who has been out since dislocating his ankle in Week 1, practiced fully Wednesday and is expected to be in the lineup against the Cowboys.


Nov 13 2017 - Halapoulivaati Vaitai
  LT Halapoulivaati Vaitai will make his third straight start for injured Jason Peters Sunday. The Eagles had considered moving RT Lane Johnson over to the left side and putting Vaitai at right tackle. But Vaitai is a natural left tackle and offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland didn't want to make two moves.


Nov 13 2017 - Rasul Douglas
  CB Rasul Douglas likely will be the odd man out Sunday when Ronald Darby returns. Douglas has been playing on the outside along with Jalen Mills. Patrick Robinson is the Eagles' slot corner.


Nov 13 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby is expected to make his return Sunday night against Dallas. Darby has been sidelined since Week 1 with a dislocated ankle, but has been practicing for the last three weeks.


Nov 13 2017 - Dexter McDougle
  CB Dexter McDougle was released by the Eagles Monday.


Nov 13 2017 - Dannell Ellerbe

Nov 13 2017 - Zach Ertz
  TE Zach Ertz, who sat out the Eagles' 53-21 pre-bye week win over Denver with a tight hamstring, practiced Monday, is not ready to say he'll definitely play Sunday night against Dallas.


Nov 9 2017 - Timmy Jernigan
  DT Tim Jernigan signed a four-year contract extension. The deal is worth $48 million, including $26 million guaranteed, according to ESPN. Jernigan was acquired from the Baltimore Ravens in an offseason trade and has blended in well with the Eagles, particularly in tandem with standout defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. Jernigan has recorded 20 tackles for a team that leads the NFL in rushing defense at 66.4 yards per game. He has made eight tackles for losses, including 1.5 sacks.


Nov 8 2017 - Timmy Jernigan
  DT Tim Jernigan tweaked an ankle in Sunday's win over the Broncos. But he is expected to be fine by next week.


Nov 8 2017 - Stefen Wisniewski
  G Stefen Wisniewski has been taking the lion's share of snaps at left guard since the Eagles benched struggling Isaac Seumalo after the second game. The initial plan was for him to rotate with Chance Warmack. But Wisniewski has played so well, that they decided to keep him pretty much full-time.


Nov 8 2017 - Zach Ertz
  TE Zach Ertz is expected to return to the lineup next week when the Eagles play the Cowboys. Ertz sat out Sunday's win over the Broncos with a tight hamstring. The Eagles wanted to make sure he was 100 percent for the Dallas game.


Nov 8 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby is expected to be a full practice participant next week when the Eagles return from their bye-week vacation. Darby, who dislocated his ankle in Week 1, has practiced on a limited basis the last two weeks. He probably will play next week when the Eagles face Dallas.


Nov 8 2017 - Caleb Sturgis
  K Caleb Sturgis (hip) is eligible to come off injured reserve, but the Eagles aren't expected to do anything with him given how well his replacement, Jake Elliott has been kicking.


Nov 8 2017 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz has thrown 17 touchdown passes in the Eagles' last five games. That's the most ever by an Eagles quarterback over a five-game stretch. "He improves every single week," head coach Doug Pederson said


Nov 6 2017 - Caleb Sturgis
  K Caleb Sturgis is eligible to come off injured reserve, but the Eagles aren't expected to make a move with him. His replacement, Jake Elliott, has kicked very well in his absence.


Nov 6 2017 - Timmy Jernigan
  DT Tim Jernigan injured his ankle and left the game Sunday, but head coach Doug Pederson insisted it is a minor injury and said he could have returned to the game if it had been necessary.


Nov 6 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby is expected to make his return after the bye week. Darby has been sidelined since Week 1 with a dislocated ankle. He has practiced on a limited basis the last three weeks and has been listed as questionable for the games, even though the Eagles had no intention of playing him. But he is expected to be a full practice participant after the bye and probably will play on Nov. 19 against the Cowboys.


Nov 6 2017 - Lane Johnson
  OT Lane Johnson bruised his tailbone in the third quarter Sunday and left the game for a series before returning. It doesn't appear to be anything that is going to linger.


Nov 6 2017 - Corey Clement
  RB Corey Clement became the first rookie in franchise history with a rushing touchdown and receiving touchdown in the same game since 1953.


Nov 6 2017 - Ronald Darby

Nov 6 2017 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz threw four touchdown passes and was 15 of 27 for 199 yards (118.7 passer rating) in Sunday's game. "He prepares so well each week," Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said of his second-year quarterback. "It's fun to watch." Wentz threw touchdown strikes to Alshon Jeffery, Corey Clement and tight end Trey Burton, pushing his total to a league-best 23 this season.


Nov 6 2017 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi made an immediate impact for Philadelphia on Sunday after his acquisition from the Miami Dolphins for a conditional fourth-round draft pick in 2018. He rushed eight times for 77 yards, including a 46-yard touchdown run in the Eagles' 51-23 victory over the Denver Broncos Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, propelling them to an NFL-best 8-1 record. During the week, it was unclear if Ajayi would even be active.The 24-year-old fit right in with the Eagles as they picked up their seventh straight win."No, not nervous," Ajayi said of his debut. "I'm confident in my talent and ability. It's just about, like I said, whenever I got my chance, just making sure that I took full advantage of it."


Nov 2 2017 - Carson Wentz
  QB Carson Wentz was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for October. Wentz completed 89 of 148 passes for 1,247 yards with 14 touchdowns and three interceptions for the Eagles (7-1).

Nov 1 2017 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi practiced with the Eagles for the first time on Wednesday. Head coach Doug Pederson said before practice that it was too soon to say whether Ajayi would be activated for Sunday's game against Denver. It's extremely likely that he will be.


Nov 1 2017 - Nate Sudfeld
  QB Nate Sudfeld was signed off the practice squad and promoted to the 53-man roster. He's the team's third quarterback behind Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. The Eagles will keep just two players active on game day.


Nov 1 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby was a limited practice participant again. Darby, who is recovering from a Week 1 dislocated ankle, has been practicing on a limited basis for the last two weeks. He probably won't play this week against Denver, but likely will return after the Week 10 bye.


Oct 31 2017 - Jay Ajayi
  RB Jay Ajayi was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles from the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday for a fourth-round pick in the 2018 draft.

Oct 30 2017 - Halapoulivaati Vaitai
  LT Halapoulivaati Vaitai "held up extremely well" in his first start at left tackle for Jason Peters, head coach Doug Pederson said Monday. The Eagles had considered sliding RT Lane Johnson over to left tackle and plugging Vaitai in at right tackle. But they felt Johnson's been playing very well at right tackle and they didn't want to move him.


Oct 30 2017 - Ronald Darby
  CB Ronald Darby has been a limited practice participant the last two weeks as he continues to come back from his Week 1 ankle dislocation. While there's a possibility he could play this week against Denver, the Eagles probably will keep him out until after next week's bye week.


Oct 30 2017 - Torrey Smith
